With an .htaccess file, you will determine how the server which manages the requests to your web sites should act in a variety of situations. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when an individual tries to open your website and what happens next is determined by the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to an alternative URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, including Joomla, WordPress and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
